hi, I’ve played harp on and off for 5 years.
I have a small wire harp, specifically a 26 string Limerick, and I play it exactly the same way as my larger lever harp. Changing the technique you have already learned is not necessary unless you are set on playing wire harp in the traditional manner.
Let’s just make a small distinction here- about “proper” wire technique. By whose definition? The ancient bards of Ireland? Since they are not with us, I would refer to the fact there are three methods to play wire harp- the classical harp method, the coupled hands or Heymann method, and the traditional Cathcart/Caswell/Bell(?)
